Long Night’s Journey Into Day: Yanks-Tigers Gamer

If a tree falls in a forest…If no Yanks fan is watching, is a Yanks’ loss really a loss? What if a team’s Pythagorean record is much better than its real record? Does that mean that team’s record is really not what it really is?

Answer: Reality sucks. Deal with it.

And this is what the Yanks have to do after an excruciating defeat like last night’s. Deal with it by moving on. The post-season is on the line. No time to feel sorry for yourself. And with that, the Yanks send out their fine, albeit struggling, young Taiwanese hurler Chien-Ming Wang, to stop the pain. Fortunately (or am I tempting fate here?) the Tigers counter with Jeremy Bonderman, who has been awful recently. Hopefully his problems continue. This is your gamer for comment. Go Yanks!

  • i’ll give you a pass on this one 1918, because you may not have seen what i said on one of the other threads about the sox being a better team for longer than the yanks this year…my concession speech basically…the yanks problem isn’t peaking at the wrong time, it’s not peaking enough, or for long enough…the barb i was tossing at my buddy sf was that the sox may get cold by playoff time…ok?

  • Wasn’t one of the Joba Rules that if Joba warms up, he has to pitch?
    Joba warmed up for an inning but Brian Bruney is coming in to pitch the 9th instead.

  • It wasn’t Joba warming up; the announcers made a mistake

  • I thought the first Joba Rule was that you don’t talk about Joba Rules.

  • What happened to the AL curfew rule that prohibited an inning from starting after 1 am?
